My guess is EVERYTHING! FL is a horrible place!


Spread the word please and keep some of the 1000 people a day that are moving here from doing so. We actually prefer the mountain west but that of course is because we've been living here our whole lives and are jaded.

Worse skeeters I ever saw were in Wisconsin on the lake. Tho Everglades City would give that place a run for the money.

When we retired we did a winter season in Florida, next year in South Texas, next year in desert southwest (Arizona and California) and one season in Mexico.

My personal preferences....Florida, I like the North Central area, South Texas, Port Aransas Corpus Christi area, California the Glamas sand dunes area, Arizona Yuma in December and January and Lake Havasu and Parker areas later. . Mexico, San Carlos.

Each area has something unique and interesting to offer. Best thing to do is take your time and check them all out.

But this is looking like one of those posts where someone tosses something out and then vanishes w/o a trace.
Starting to look like that.

We spent one winter in Florida, one winter in RGV, and 3 years bobbing about Arizona before we settled on Mesa. We now own a park model in our favorite park in Mesa, and spend the winter there with the coach in storage.

Florida was too many bugs and I hate places whose attitude is "yes we need tourists, but we hate you, can't you just leave your money and go away".

RGV, Texas - - I don't do well with chewing dust. Plus not much to do besides potlucks and drinking - neither of which we do.

Arizona, Phoenix area has arts venues all over, great restaurants, shopping of every kind, Starbucks every mile or so, 15 minutes are you are out in the desert or up in the mountains and the biggest plus. SPRING TRAINING??!
